affordable units will be provided as inclusionary units throughout the market rate development. 70% of such units or 134 units at 80% ami and remaining 30% at 50% ami. together with the 218 units that will be provided by ocai we'll be talking about 410 affordable units on phase 1 of the shipyard. the sixth amendment to the phase 1dda modified affordable housing program allowing lennar to shift the 50% ami units to inclusionary to a stand alone project on block 49. this notification has the benefit that 50% ami units will be provided at once and faster than if they were included in the market rate project that will be constructed over time ~. it is important to note that agreements did not change the total number of affordable housing units in phase 1 or the nature of 80% ami units which continue to be delivered as inclusionary units within the market rate project. the sixth amendment simply changed how we provide 50% ami units. on the transaction side we treat block 49 as if it is agency stand alone housing project but with one very important distinction, mainly ocii doesn't put an
